Strength to Strength will typically host two Talks a year to spotlight Kingdom initiatives that can be an inspiration to others in the greater community of Jesus’ followers. If you know of a project that you would like to see spotlighted please contact us here.

Strength to Strength welcomed three brothers to discuss what their lives look like being a disciple of Jesus. They will share with us ways to pray and partner with them in their work.

The unsung heros of Jesus’ kingdom are the faithful disciples who serve their Lord without fanfare or applause.

Whether you are a warrior in secret prayer, a widow who casts in the last two mites, or a worker advancing the bleeding edge of the kingdom, you can rest assured that deeds of service do not escape the eye of our benevolent King.

An interactive question-and-answer period follows.

“Where your talents and the needs of the world cross, there lies your vocation.”

I plan to share briefly about our journey up to present, as well as our ministry here in Creel, Chihuahua, Mexico. I plan to share about the vision for further integration into the local community through a café business, and also briefly about an open door God has given us, and the need for prayer and financial partners if we are to walk through it.

Phil Reiff is a husband, father of six, and is currently involved in church planting in Creel, Chihuahua, Mexico. Phil enjoys his family, people in general, music, good food, and a healthy laugh. He has been passionate about serving people and giving his best, in order to empower them to become the person God has created them to be.

Could it be time for Anabaptist Christians to return to Europe— the land from which they once fled as refugees? Nearly 500 years later, people from unreached nations are fleeing their homes, also as refugees, and pouring into Europe. How does this bring an awareness of not just one need, but two?

AJ and his family are currently serving under DNI. Their role includes several months of travel throughout European countries, researching and documenting the various opportunities, as well as visiting and learning from those teams and/or organizations who have already begun work in Europe. We are collaborating with other Anabaptists during this exploratory year by sharing research and brainstorming together how we can continue to develop a network of Anabaptist communities and ministries across Europe.
